I don't see anything negative in this. Mel is not a big act in UK so why not perform infront of an audience that will probably like her stuff as All Saints are a pop act like her.

She's friends with them so what's the big deal with being out there supporting them and doing her own thing , Go Mel :love:

I don't think it's bad really... They're bigger than Melanie C

It would be SO weird if it was All Saints supporting Melanie C

Exactly. These things aren't bad. All Saints fans will know the Spice Girls. So they might be quite excited to see her. Plus some of them may become fans of Melanie or buy the album.

Also All Saints are supporting Take That on tour this year. It's just a case of performing when and where you can.

I wanted to go but can't cuz I'm getting married the next day lol

I don't see this as being embarrassing/sad for her in the slightest. She's a performer, and if she's getting out there and performing to thousands, how is this a problem? :confused:

There's absolutely no problem about her performing to thousands. That'll be great! But support acts are usually less famous than the actual act that their supporting, right? I guess some of us here still can't accept that fact including myself that All Saints is now more famous than a Spice Girl. Haha! I still think "Guest Performance" will do rather than "Support Act"... :)

I love All Saints so GET IN! And what a fun summery outing. :music:

I do think they should be co-headlining though really. Should be a great atmosphere nonetheless and Mel should get to do an hour set.

Everyone was "less successful" than the Spice Girls (in their heyday). So...? :rolleyes:

And I'm sure your life is a flop. :wave:


You are so rude when someone has a different opinion about Melanie.

The problem here and on this forum is that people are obsessed with the word " flop". So so sad but hey if that's how they measure life then fill your boots :wave:

We should all accept that Melanie C is not a big mainstream artist and get over with that.

A friend showed me a tweet (or a few tweets) about fans tweeting Melanie C that it should be the other way around... All Saints supporting Melanie C...

Come on guys! We love the girls. We love Melanie C but dunno if those fans are truly for real or making fun or what... but really?

No disrespect to Melanie C or her fans but ... well I don't even think I need to explain it any further

To be fair, it's a matter of hierarchy.

Spice Girls > All Saints > Solo Spice Girls > Solo All Saints


So it's not that sad that a solo Spice Girl supports the full All Saints band, same as one solo All Saint was a guest on a Melanie C concert. It would be sad if Melanie was supporting the Appleton's tour or if the Spice Girls were the supporting act of All Saints. But what's currently happening, to me, is more than ok. All Saints as a band are currently bigger and more demanded in the UK than solo Melanie C. And despite Melanie being supper successful in 1999-2000, All Saints were a lot more successful than her, so I don't see why exactly some you think Melanie C supporting All Saints is low or sad.

To me it is just the job is like Mel B taking some crappy tv job for a week. She'll do like 6 songs, ITTY NBTSA WYG a Spice girls song and Anymore/Dear life. No one will rush and buy her album, the crowd will only engage with the NS era songs or the Spice song.

It is just a quick cash job, which I don't like when any of the girls do such a thing.

The only sad thing about all this is this kind of sad thinking. I can only see a great fun gig that I´d love to go to if I had the chance

She will do more than six songs !
I saw all saints play Brixton last year. They only played for 1hr 15 mins ....
Melanie will at least have a 45 minute set I think .
I hope for a set like under the bridge but electronic .

Once you are offered some money for a job and you have a family behind you then say no.

All Saints (4) + Melanie C (1) = 5

Just pick a song from the Spice Girls and give us life!

Return to “Melanie C”
